*Kevtrich performs said manuver, suddenly cutting his speed down to near zero with reverse thrusters and yanking back hard on the stick, the G's cuasing him to nearly black out as he sqeaks out to Highwind,* Neutralize enemy ships sir, I was assigned to take out heavy weapons on group 03, theres two left. *Kevtrich flips his craft 180 degrees and levels it out before shooting his throttle forward and tearing off towards to Lucas. The less than agile missiles, and even less agile star-fighter craft unexpecting the manunver, shoot past Kevtrich and lose their firing line on him.* Highwind, Lucas, care to help me show these bloated sons of a slowmoving freightor a thing or two?

Realizing they had lost the element of surprise-- and their only chance of accomplishing anything-- the two remaining marines immediately branch off and begin flying at full speed towards the nearest two enemy capital ships, still spraying at any nearby enemy--or friendly AI-- fighters, both downing one or two enemies and three or four unsuspecting friendlies in their reckless charge.

Scott, the marine who went down, jumps out of his sim, and climbs into the one immediately to the left, dropping back into the game. As soon as he is out of the capital ship hangar where he "spawned," he spins his fighter to face the friendly ship. "Requesting shield drop and permission to land," he says to the AI captain.

"Permission granted," comes the automatic response. The shields drop and hangar doors open--and without any warning, Scott opens fire on the hangar, wreaking havoc through the ship as his lasers tear through the unshielded interior. Within only a few seconds, he has completely disabled the ship, and the enemy begins to move closer to where the others are fighting, the fighter squadrons gaining a foothold deep into the friendly lines. Scott turns his starfighter and heads off for the main battle.

OOC- for those who are lost, the marines are a bit rambunctious from the excessive root beer, and decided to troll the pilots into losing or ragequitting the game. Very Happy

"You didn't!" Tom screams. His Albatross is blown up from Scott's FUI (Flying Under Influence Razz ) Charge and he jumps into the next flight sim. He produces a thumbdrive and after opening up the case around the flight sim's computer, plugs it in.

"Attention Marines!" Locke yells into his comms. "This is Major Locke Highwind! You are to cease hostile activity immediately and help coordinate our attack on the enemy vessel. We have eight minutes to finish this thing up and head to the briefing room. Totally possible, now let's move out!"

Locke cranks his Dagger up to Warp 1 speeding towards the nearest enemy capital ship.

Alasdair's Scottish voice comes through the comms, "Aye, Major, we'll take them baddies down for ye, won't we, lads?"

Scott's and Vladmir's laughs confirm this, as the three fighters form up in some semblance of a formation and head straight for the target vessel at top speed. "That's it, boys, let 'em have it!" All three open fire as soon as they're in range, spraying at the bridge of the enemy ship.

They aren't slowing down.

*Kevtrich rolls his eyes, annoyed, and dives down straight towards the second to last enemy heavy weapons emplacement in his assigned group, releasing his missiles and then dipping over the edge of the ship.*

The missiles strike home and the ship lists to port, a fire rages from the gaping hole that is expelling oxygen.

"Excellent work pilot." Locke says. "Now, I'll finish her off!"

Locke dives his Dagger towards the ship and fires his sub-shock cannons into the gaping hole in the capital ship, slicing through several bulkheads. Before he pulls off his attack run, he fires a couple of missiles into the hole, completely splitting the capital ship in two.

"One to go boys, let's do this!"

As the ship breaks apart, the bridge splits in two-- just as the two marine fighters reach it, they pass through the narrow gap. Determined not to be beat to it this time, they immediately turn to the next target ship, and put all the power into the thrusters, shooting towards the enemy bridge far ahead of the other friendly fighters.

Spawning a Star Falcon IV fighter bomber from one of the hacked Excelsiors' hanger bays, Tom pours full power into the engines. Even in a simulator, he can feel the near breakneck acceleration of the four engined bird of prey. Not bothering to actually set the computer, Tom overrides the warp deflector safety switch and proceeds to do a micro warp jump, very much damaging his Falcon's structural integrity, but putting him ahead of the suicidal Scotsmen.

Though, judging from the stunt he just pulled, it can be said that Tom isn't any less crazed.

Sticking out his tongue at Scott in one of the simulator boxes to his side, Tom activates all the guns and prepares to fire everything at the left drifting bridge section of the capital ship. Letting his calm side relax for a bit, Tom allows that childish part of his mind to completely take over. "EAT LAZERS, NOOB!! DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!" he hollers as he fires everything his bird of steel has when it comes to destructive weaponry.

Refusing to be outdone, the marines fly at full speed, quickly catching up to Tom as he is forced to divert power from his thrusters to his weapons. As Alasdair and Scott begin to pass him, not firing at all, Vladmir suddenly veers off, and is soon immediately above Tom. He shoves his stick down, and his fighter slams into Tom's.

*Kevtrich forms up on Locke's wing and ignores the Marines and crazy Federation pilot. They manuver to the underside of the ship, where one of it's missile bays sits, full of anti-matter missiles.* Careful, we need to drill a hole to them, but not actually into them until we're much farther away, or we're all going splat.

With all the power shared between weapons and thrusters, Tom's Star Falcon is protected only by its structural rigidity (keep in mind, Star Falcons are built to ram other ships) and the very much abysmal emergency shielding keeping the cabin glass from shattering.

Tom pulls back on his flight stick, and the force of his four engines pushes both fighters upwards. Of course, for Tom, the race to take down the enemy capital ship is lost, but now it's a game of which simulated fighter will explode from the strain first, or run away.

Vladmir, his thick Russian laugh reverberating through the comms as he and Tom bashed their fighters together, trained at one time to be a Marine pilot. He digs up those buried skills now, as he pulls a trick much too complicated for the other Marines. He jerks his stick back, does a fast barrel roll to the left as he snaps it down, rolls back right, and slams up again--right into the bottom of Tom's Star Falcon, hitting it so hard that the tip of his fighter sinks slightly into the front of the Falcon, pointing UP towards the tip of it ever so slightly. Still laughing hysterically, almost maniacally, he quicky arms and fires two missiles, which hit right at the point where the two fighters are touching.

Meanwhile, Alasdair and Scott reach the enemy capital ship. Coming in much too fast for the AI's target locks, but not firing any weapons themselves, they, too, split up. Alasdair's fighter disappears into the lower part of the bridge, while Scott hits the nearest nacelle so hard and fast that part of the wrecked hulk of his fighter shoots out the other side, and crashes into the next nacelle. Both fighters had armed all of their missiles before crashing, so the impact is devastating.

Lacking any effective anti-capital ship weaponry, Lucas leaves the other flyboys and their heavy bombers to destroy the warships, while he goes after the larger enemy fighters to keep them from doing the same. He vaguely considers firing one or two dozen missiles at the rogue, friendly fire-crazy Marines, but decides against it and continues his mission.

Locating a nearby half-squadron of bombers approaching fast on an allied ship, he adjusts his angle and begins flying toward them...

Tom's and the drunk Russian's simulator screens become alight with two pretty explosions as both armed fighters explode. With a sigh, Tom respawns as a Star Phoenix.

*Kevtrich meanwhile reaches the last enemy heavy weapons emplacement and begins to blast a hole in the missile bay with his anti-captial ship cannons, firing short bursts at a time. When he judges the hole to be suitable he turns his fighter down and throttles it, letting locke finish it off from a distance.* It's all yours sir.

Locke unleashes his entire payload into the hole made by Kevtrich and the two watch the captial ship explode in glorious rays of light.

"That's it boys." Locke says. "Mission complete and with four minutes to spare before the briefing. Let's head to the briefing room"

OOC- AA, I was hoping their suicide crash would have immediately ended the sim, but oh well. Razz /OOC

By the time the pilots are out of the simulators, the three marines are already out of the door, walking silently down the hall as if nothing had happened.

*Kevtrich quickly lands aboard the nearest friendly hanger, ends and shutdowns the simulation, hops out, and makes a break for the breifing room, all of a 5 minute jog across teh ship.*

OOC ^^^ we're on a moonbase Razz End OOC

Auther just shakes his head as he watches the simulation on the observation screen.
The emotions were really quite fascinating once the marines entered the battle. The pilots anger skyrocketed, the Marines were on an out-right adrenalin powered joy-ride, and the Major was half amused and half displeased... a very unusual training experience.
Once everyone is out of their simulators and though the door, he joins the group.
"Briefing is in less than three minutes, let's move move move!"
He set's the pace at a sprint, but watches the others to ensure that no one falls behind.

Auther holds back his full speed and encourages the other pilots onward.
"You can make it! Come on. Hurry."

He glances at his watch even as he runs, this is not good.
